A finite group FH is said to be Frobenius-like if it has a nontrivial nilpotent normal subgroup F called kernel which has a nontrivial complement H such that FH/[F,F] is a Frobenius group with Frobenius kernel F/[F,F]. Suppose that a Frobenius-like group FH acts faithfully by linear transformations on a vector space V over a field of characteristic that does not divide vertical bar FH vertical bar. It is proved that the derived length of the kernel F is bounded solely in terms of the dimension m = dim C-V(H) of the fixed-point subspace of H by g(m) = 3 + [log(2)(m + 1)]. It follows that if a Frobenius-like group FH acts faithfully by coprime automorphisms on a finite group G, then the derived length of the kernel F is at most g(r), where r is the sectional rank of C-G(H). As an application, for a finite solvable group G admitting an automorphism phi of prime order coprime to vertical bar G vertical bar, a bound for the p-length of G is obtained in terms of the rank of a Hall p'-subgroup of C(phi). Earlier results of this kind were known only in the special case when the complement of the acting Frobenius-like group was assumed to have prime order and its. fixed-point subspace (or subgroup) was assumed to be one-dimensional (or have all Sylow subgroups cyclic).

Frobenius-like groups as groups of automorphisms
Ercan, Gülin; Khukhro, Evgeny (2014-01-01)
A finite group FH is said to be Frobenius-like if it has a nontrivial nilpotent normal subgroup F with a nontrivial complement H such that FH/[F,F] is a Frobenius group with Frobenius kernel F/[F, F]. Such subgroups and sections are abundant in any nonnilpotent finite group. We discuss several recent results about the properties of a finite group G admitting a Frobenius-like group of automorphisms FH aiming at restrictions on G in terms of C-G(H) and focusing mainly on bounds for the Fitting height and rela...
Action of a Frobenius-like group with kernel having central derived subgroup
Ercan, Gülin (2016-09-01)
A finite group FH is said to be Frobenius-like if it has a nontrivial nilpotent normal subgroup F with a nontrivial complement H such that [F, h] = F for all nonidentity elements h is an element of H. Suppose that a finite group G admits a Frobenius-like group of auto-morphisms FH of coprime order with [F', H] = 1. In case where C-G( F) = 1 we prove that the groups G and C-G( H) have the same nilpotent length under certain additional assumptions.

Rank and Order of a Finite Group Admitting a Frobenius-Like Group of Automorphisms
Ercan, Gülin; Khukhro, E. I. (2014-07-01)
A finite group FH is said to be Frobenius-like if it has a nontrivial nilpotent normal subgroup F with a nontrivial complement H such that FH/[F,F] is a Frobenius group with Frobenius kernel F/[F,F]. Suppose that a finite group G admits a Frobenius-like group of automorphisms FH of coprime order with certain additional restrictions (which are satisfied, in particular, if either |FH| is odd or |H| = 2). In the case where G is a finite p-group such that G = [G, F] it is proved that the rank of G is bounded ab...

We prove that a finite solvable group G admitting a Frobenius group FH of automorphisms of coprime order with kernel F and complement H such that [G, F] = G and C-CG(F) (h) = 1 for all nonidentity elements h is an element of H, is of nilpotent length equal to the nilpotent length of the subgroup of fixed points of H.
